In a documentary for CBC's Dispatches, Lisa visited a "coffin academy" on the outskirts of Seoul where corporate giants like Samsung sent their employees for a day long retreat. The suicide rate in Korea is so high, companies mandate their employees take part in their own funerals to find value in living.
Plastic surgery for high schoolers
One of Lisa's favourite stories filed from Seoul was about high school students getting plastic surgery procedures as a graduation present from their parents. They get a bit of work on their faces in order to have an edge in a competitive market, where most employers require a photo submission along with their qualifications for the job. This story aired in December 2010 on CBC's World this Weekend. Click below to listen.
Another feature Lisa mixed from Seoul was a story about a virtual girlfriend app for the iPhone. Being one of the technology capitals of the world means some of the innovation also goes toward improving citizens' personal lives. This aired on CBC's World this Weekend. Click below to listen.
